“Serious garbage problem”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We went to this beach during low season, the beach in itself is stunning like most beaches in Holguin. But they have a serious garbage problem, mix of litter from the beachfront bars and vacation resorts. I cant imagine how this problem must escalate in high season!.

“Guardalavaca”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Would have been disappointed if we had made a special trip as beach crowded with locals and a small market, a few beach bars but not aimed at tourists.

“Amazing...”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I was born in Holguin, so I will recommend this beach as one of the best beaches we have...restaurants are close to the beach, there are a wide selection of rentals at a great price and the beach is absolutely clean...

“perfect beach”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

very clean, very eco friendly and great snorkling one of the best beaches i've ever been to in the carbibean much better than st lucia and a lifeguard present at all times. Parts of beach open to the public but all very very staff and reguarly patroled by local police and security. the sea is crystal clear and the fish swim around your feet-lovely!
